EXACTLY! One of the reasons for why I stopped being "Christian".

If you feel God, you are divinely inspired.
If you find God, you are Born Again.
If you hear God, you are spiritually in tune.
If you listen to God, you are meditating.
If you talk to God, you are praying.

If God talks to you, you have schizophrenia.

But my favourite song about TRUE love / the potential of polyamory is in Basque:
"Txoria, Txori"
Hegoak ebaki banizkio
nerea izango zen,
ez zuen aldegingo.
Bainan, honela
ez zen gehiago txoria izango
eta nik...
txoria nuen maite.
- Joxan Artze / Mikel Laboa
Bird, Little Bird (my translation from another's translation into Spanish)
If I had cut her wings,
She would be mine,
She wouldn't have flown away.
But in that case
She would have ceased to be a bird.
And I...
I loved the bird.

Here's one for the rest of you to quote (pats himself on back):

Isn't it funny how the people who egged you on to "Go on and jump in the water!" stand around on the bank and watch wistfully while you're enjoying the river???
